Issue: 87 - The State of British Poetry

Jon Corelis’ controversial essay, ‘From Scotland to Suburbia: A Landscape of Current British Poetry’ from his talk at the University of Salzburg’s conference on British and Irish poetry. Corelis looks at trends in British poetry, dividing it into stylistic schools, with explosive results. G A Pickin ponders Scottish identity: just anti-Englishness? Alec Finlay commemorates Alexander Carmichael’s Carmina Gadelica, a Gaelic national treasure– in a homage with Robert Alan Jamieson, Christopher Whyte, Anne Frater, Valerie Gillies and others. New work by Sally Evans, Eva Lambert, Maurice Lindsay, Aonghas Macneacail and Colin Mackay, W S Milne, William Neill … Bill Duncan gives a witty taste of Dundonian folk traditions. Neil Henderson’s article takes a satirical, iconoclastic scalpel to the search for originality in writing. 104 pp, 1997, ISBN-10: 0-906772-83-4 / ISBN-13: 978-0-906772-83-6 £5.00
